How does the energy market work in South Australia?

There's a wide range of energy retailers operating in South Australia so consumers have a lot of choice when it comes to finding a gas or electricity plan.

The South Australian energy market has been deregulated since 2002, meaning providers are free to set their own prices. While there is only one main distributor of both gas and electricity, there are a number of provider options in both markets.

SA Power Networks is the main electricity distributor in South Australia, though some remote systems are provided by other companies.

How to compare energy plans and deals in South Australia

A free energy market means more choices for consumers. Many providers offer discounts, special offers or unique plans to suit your energy needs. Here's what you should look out for:

  • Discounts. It can be worth switching providers just to get a discount, but not all discounts are the same. Make sure to read all of the terms and conditions for any discount a retailer offers.
  • Payment flexibility. Some companies offer several payment options while others only allow customers to pay using direct debit or credit card.
  • Apps. Many providers offer apps or online tools that let you measure energy consumption in real-time and help you reduce your energy use.
  • Contract terms. Always check your contract carefully. Some providers will automatically roll over an existing contract. However, fees may apply.
  • Tariffs. Compare the tariffs charged by various providers. In an open energy market providers often raise tariffs.
  • Early termination fees. Some energy providers charge a fee when you terminate a contract before the end date. Check before switching and factor the cost into your calculations.

How can I switch providers in South Australia?

Switching energy providers in South Australia is simple. All you need to do is choose a new retailer and sign up.
